Can you believe that horrible joke that Seth McFarland just told on the Oscar?

I can't even repeat it, it was so bad.

Don't know too much about him, but he doesn't seem comfortable up there.

1. His type of humor isn't going over too well, that's for sure.

My wife and I have chuckled a few times, groaned a few others (and we love Family Guy)...

2. My son is laughing a lot...

but he keeps saying he's gonna get in so much trouble for a lot of the jokes.

I've laughed at some of the jokes..then again I have a morbid sense of humor and often not pc.

4. Joke in the worst possible taste...ever.

Who in the f*ck thinks the murder of a President is funny? I don't give a crap how long ago it was.

Shame. And the Academy should apologize. That moron
McFarland won't.

5. I thought it was funny that everyone hated the Lincoln joke

but had no problem laughing at the Kardashian joke. Lincoln don't care but Kim and family might.

I just tuned in right before that so I don't know what I missed earlier.

Seth is the creator of Family guy and American Dad and as far as I know a pretty liberal guy and I usually like him but he does look uncomfortable up there to me. He is known for being over the line though. Depending where your line is, of course. lol

7. Offensive? Not really. He sucks as an Oscars host, though.

That was truly painful to watch.

8. I think Macfarlane is doing fine.

I think the joke was outrageous, but not terrible.

I am not easily offended, however.

9. I have got to admit that I don't even know

who the guy and I have never seen anything he has been in. I don't think that I have missed much.

10. Funny joke..and great performance so far...

...so much better than last year....love the fact that he's making all of those self-important millionaires uncomfortable and keeping them on their entitled toes...

This is painful to watch...he is really not doing well.

And that Lincoln joke..even bad jokes usually get a courtesy laugh at least!

13. I didn't have any idea who he was

Didn't even recognize him from anywhere, and I at least kind of know who the bigger names are even if I don't watch the shows. And I thought that's why I haven't been digging him so much. He's just meh.

15. They knew what they were getting when they hired Seth

I thought he was Ok. He even toned down his usual type of comedy

Fact-He's a great crooner

Fact He's a great Dem and gives a lot of money to support Gay Rights

Fact He's worth 100 million dollars

Fact"MacFarlane was presented the Harvard Humanist of the Year Award for 2011 for “his extensive body of work, his active, passionate commitment to Humanist values, and his fearless support of equal marriage rights and other social justice issues.”

16. I think he did a good job.

I usually turn it off because it's so boring. Not this time.
